Healthy Turkey & Lentil Meatloaf

One of the home-cooked, comfort food meals that I often think of when I think of ‘ketchup’ is…

MEATLOAF.

It may not be the fanciest, prettiest meal that you’ve ever eaten… but it’s satisfying and comforting. (sigh)

I had ground turkey on hand and instead of going out to buy ground beef to make meatloaf, I felt inspired to re-create this go-to comfort food in a way that was both hearty and healthy…. AND, of course, TASTY!!

Along with the ground turkey, I used oatmeal, chopped red bell pepper, and lentils to “beef” up this meatloaf!!

You will be enjoying a SUPER ‘good-for-you’ meal that is also comforting and full of flavor at the same time!!!

If you’re not excited, well… YOU SHOULD BE!!

Apple, Goat Cheese, and Honey Tartlets

It’s time for dessert!

You didn’t think I could do “H is for Honey” and not do dessert… did you?

First up… Apple, Goat Cheese, and Honey Tartlets

Actually, I think I went a little overboard with the desserts but there were too many possibilities… we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it readied us for what will be a purely savory “I” in our Apples to Ziti line up… Can you guess what it is?

Honey Balsamic Chicken Drumettes

Honey I’m home!!

This is one of those meals that is wonderful to come home to… you could make over and over again… eat it over and over again and never be sick of it…

You can do most of the chicken ahead of time and then just leave yourself time to pre-heat the oven, put the drumettes on a baking sheet, and bake! LOVE it!

D is for Dorito-Baked Mashed Potatoes

The last of the Dorito recipes…

IMG_7919

Even if you are NOT a Doritos fan, you MUST try these mashed potatoes! The secret ingredient is actually the cheese I use, though the Doritos were a nice touch (easily removed if you don’t want to use them!) My recipe serves 5-8 people and you can make it ahead of time because you finish them off in the oven!

The potatoes are simple and delicious! They are great for bringing to a get-together as you can make them up to 6 hours ahead and then just bake them for 18 to 20 minutes wherever you’re serving them. No re-heating your mashed potatoes or trying to keep them hot in transit!

Here’s the full recipe: Dorito-Topped Mashed Potatoes
